This product was great! We spray painted them with three shades of beige, off white, tan, and the columns looked amazing. The painting was simple, no wrong way to do it, we just lightly sprayed one shade then the next and then the next, the result looked like marble. They were used in a wedding with a large pot of flowers on the top and a Ivy garland and lights going around the column. No one could tell they were cardboard. Beautiful! I just purchased another set for another daughters wedding, we liked the look so much we are having more in this wedding.

I bought these thinking that they would make a nice addition to my wedding ambient look. When I Got them I was a little dissapointed with how flimsy they were and the fact that it came in 2 pieces - the seam was incredibly noticable. I felt like anytime I would walk by them they were going to fall over. The slightest touch would send them toppling over. and the bases looked like giant pizza boxes. I feel these could be decorated a little nicer for the price, but if you need something to put off in the distance at like a school dance or something, these could work. I would not reccomend using these for your wedding. We only used them after I spent days weighting them down, and redesigning the bases to look a little better.

    I ordered the columns to decorate for an Athens themed VBS. They are perfect for our stage. They really give an authentic feel. I like the height and they look like real columns. One down fall is that you many not be able to get many uses out of them.

        Easy to assemble for sure. Other than that very unhappy. Looks cheesy and like pizza boxes on top. No time to do all the extra work to make them look good for wedding pics. I have decided to rent some and have a bonfire.

          We had to stuff gossamer between the column and the base to make them sturdier, which was ok since it looked pretty. A few times people leaned on them and they nearly went over. They look way more solid than they are.

              These columns were put together at 7am, an hour before our event started. They were a snap to assemble and looked great to be made out of cardboard.They were a great deal for the price. Also very durable. They survived a day-long event for high-school students. We were even able to tear them down and store them for the next event!

              Service and delivery comments:

              They were delivered way earlier than expected!

                      I was surprised by this product. After putting it together,the top and bottom did resemble pizza boxes. It was relatively easy to assmeble but I did have to do some doctoring to it. To compensate for the "pizza box" look. I used white/grey marble contact paper to cover the top and bottom, added some weight to the bottom, and also used some tulle around the column and it was a great addition to the wedding reception. I would purchase this again because it was cheaper than renting columns.

                          I bought these thinking that they would make a nice addition to my wedding ambient look. When I Got them I was a little dissapointed with how flimsy they were and the fact that it came in 2 pieces - the seam was incredibly noticable. I felt like anytime I would walk by them they were going to fall over. The slightest touch would send them toppling over. and the bases looked like giant pizza boxes. I feel these could be decorated a little nicer for the price, but if you need something to put off in the distance at like a school dance or something, these could work. I would not reccomend using these for your wedding. We only used them after I spent days weighting them down, and redesigning the bases to look a little better.

                              This product was great! We spray painted them with three shades of beige, off white, tan, and the columns looked amazing. The painting was simple, no wrong way to do it, we just lightly sprayed one shade then the next and then the next, the result looked like marble. They were used in a wedding with a large pot of flowers on the top and a Ivy garland and lights going around the column. No one could tell they were cardboard. Beautiful! I just purchased another set for another daughters wedding, we liked the look so much we are having more in this wedding.

                                  We do not have any type of max weight restriction listed for each size. These pillars are constructed of cardboard only.

                                  Yes. You should have no problem at all with any of the sizes of our columns holding a bouquet of plastic flowers.

                                  YES THEY WILL. I ALSO DECORATED AROUND THE OUT SIDE OF EACH TOP AND BOTTOM. BUT USE THE FORM FLORAL PIECE WITH THE FLAT BOTTOM SO YOU HAVE TO MUCH WEIGHT ON THE TOP.

                                  I'm sorry but we no longer carry the large white roses. We have pink roses or small white roses only.

                                  These columns are made of corrugated cardboard. They are not meant to be taken apart and put back together repeatedly. More of a one time use.
